    Can this blank be wet sanded ?

    To my knowledge, people wet sand to reduce heat and control dust. Personally, I don't use wet sanding because I don't think it is ever necessary. But, if you like it, there is no reason this material will react any differently than any other burl.

    With any hybrid, my regimen is fairly consistent. I turn the blanks until I am about an eighth of an inch away from finished dimension. Then, I stop the lathe to check for any voids or any sign of "detaching" of the wood from the resin. If there is any hint of this, I apply thin CA (Cyanoacrylic Glue) as an insurance policy.

    With blanks from this maker, I have never had voids, but I still check. Then, turn to finished size and sand. Apply a gluboost finish--start with a coat or two of thin, then a coat or two of blue label (pro), then a final coat or two of thin. Use gluboost accelerator (non-blushing) between coats when necessary (depends on humidity in great part). I let this sit overnight to cure, then sand lightly with 600 grit. Finally, I take the blank to the buffing machine and buff with tripoli, then white diamond.

    This results in a beautiful shine!!

    There are as many methods as there are turners, but this is my most recent and most successful to date!! Ed (October 2019)
